Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 is a foldable smartphone developed by Samsung Electronics for its Samsung Galaxy Z series. It was announced on August 5th, 2020 alongside Samsung Galaxy Tab S7, Samsung Galaxy Note 20, The Galaxy Buds Live, and the Galaxy Watch 3.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 price an availability detail later reveled on the 1st of September. The original Galaxy Fold was a concept wit terrible execution, besieged by problems, and pitfalls at nearly every turn.
However, this is not just a foldable phone, it’s a movement waiting to begin. It’s not a phone for everyone – its $2,000 (£1,799, AU$2,999) price puts it out of range for many.
Galaxy Z Fold 2 was redesigned after review models broke in multiple ways, causing the brand to lose distribution partners, drop color options, and deliver the foldable device four months late.
